You don’t need us to tell you how popular street food is, you already know that. What do you need to know though is that this month Peckham will see the launch of the aptly named ‘Peckham Feastival’. Some of the finest food trucks will be taking over an 11,500 sq foot warehouse in Peckham’s artsy Copeland Park.
Forza Win, a favourite for local Peckhamites, will be taking the driving seat serving all sorts of Italian goodness such as arancini and artichoke fritti. The Feastival is not just about local food though, established food trucks from markets all over London will be there to serve up their delicious treats. Including The Cheese Truck, for example, famous for their exquisite grilled cheese, or Popdogs, offering gourmet hot dogs. As the name suggests, attendees really will be in for a feast!
Of course, as with all feasts, cocktails will be flowing aplenty. The award winning bar team, Spirited Mixers will be serving up winter favourites, but with a twist. Try the Hot Tequila Been with Ribena or maybe an El Jimador Tequila. For all you beer lovers, there’ll be a beer station with a 250 litre tank filled with unpasteurised Pilsner Urguell and there’s also a Jack Daniels boilermaker mini bar for those partial to a bit of whisky.
The evenings will see DJ’s livening up the dancefloor, although, after all that food you may find yourself sinking into the cosy sofas instead. For those with a competitive streak a game of crazy golf might take your fancy – Birdies Crazy Gold Club have created a bespoke nine hole course featuring an elevated 5ft drop amongst other crazy loops.
Street food + cocktails + crazy golf = a winning combination. (If you ask us.)
